Students wishing to become involved in choral performance register in Choral Music which is offered outside of the regular timetable. Throughout the year Ms. Melissa Townley-Smith develops repertoire that includes concert choir and, of course, the finest show choir in the city. Show choir combines both vocal and dance performance through an exploration of show repertoire. The Bishop Grandin Show Choir competes nationally with great success and stages several performances throughout the school year both in and out of school.
In addition to the concert and show choir ensemble, each year there are opportunities for students to develop repertoire in jazz ensemble, hip hop dance and other genres depending on the interest of the students.
Our choral music program is supported by the Bishop Grandin Choir Parents who provide administrative and fund raising support to this program. An annual fee is assessed which covers the cost of uniforms and music for the students.
Students will be expected to attend morning classes and rehearsals throughout the school year as well as Friday evenings and Saturdays once a month throughout the school year.
